This moss is only known from the two syntypes collected by Herzog from Tunariseen (Department of Cochabamba). Originally described as Haplodontium crassinervum by Herzog (1916), this species was transferred to Bryum by Shaw (1987). Bryum crassinervum is related to B. alpinum Huds. ex With. according to Shaw (1987), distinguished by the highly branched stems (4-5 cm long) giving the appearance of lateral perichaetia.
